Happy New Year!
I’d like to take this opportunity to thank you all for your support in 2011. The efforts of our amazing Board, donors, volunteers, staff and other supporters resulted in an outstanding year for ASF. And, wishing you all the best, we look forward to an even greater 2012.
Our 25th year of service to Orange County had many milestones. Most importantly, ASF was able to continue offering our services to over 1,600 men, women and children affected by HIV. Despite more cutbacks in state and local funding, no one was turned away from ASF. In fact, some of our newer programs, such as SOMOS, continued to blossom and grow last year. I’m grateful for the continued support of private citizens and corporations that assist us in funding such outreach programs for the community.
AIDS Walk Orange County also had its silver anniversary in 2011 and we were able to celebrate that milestone at The Disneyland Resort. I’m excited to inform you that AIDS Walk’s return to Disneyland was just announced in the press today. I hope you and your family and friends will be able to join us on May 6 for AIDS Walk Orange County at the Disneyland Resort. We had a great time last year and this year should prove to be even more exciting!
